Annual Bromeliad Tree Lighting

The Annual Bromeliad Tree Lighting to kick off the holiday season was a big success! Volunteers, Selby staff, and some special guests gathered around the 35-foot tree comprised of more than 700 bromeliads. Mayor Suzanne Atwell and members of the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee helped "flip the switch" while the Booker High School choir delighted guests with holiday tunes. Check out all the media coverage, including ABC7's live broadcast of the tree lighting countdown here:
